Natalie over at Curly Wurly Gurly released the topic for her June writing challenge.
The WORST candy in the history of mankind has to be seaweed.
Seaweed you say????
When I was in 7th or 8th grade, I took Karate classes from a dude from Okinawa. He was awesome!!! The parents of my best friend (whom I went to classes with) were also into martial arts. Kendo, if memory serves me correct.
Anyway, through the dojo her parents hosted an exchange student from Okinawa. He was a very large, very friendly guy. Sumo wrestler, or something like that. I remember him serving us alligator, and being fascinated with how cheap apples were to buy in the US.
One day, this gentlemen offered me a piece of candy.
Well.....I couldn't very well turn him down, could I?
It was shaped almost exactly like a Jolly Rancher...and was a deep purple color.
To a 7th grader purple = grape. Right?
Oh man was I wrong!!!
I put the thing in my mouth, and within seconds, it exploded. Well, maybe not BOOM!! exploded...but it grew in size...exponentially.
It was all I could do to not spew it on the carpet right there in front of him.
When I finally (subtly) made it to the bathroom....what I spit into the sink will haunt my dreams forever.
Seaweed....and lots of it!!! Ugh!!!!
You know, the more I right about the seaweed, the more I think I've already blogged about it in the past. I can't very well regurgitate a past blog post for a new writing challenge, can I?
OK, OK......I now present to you, The second worst candy in the history of mankind......KitKat.
This is the picture we took, and put in our high school yearbook the year this candy became my second worst candy......
Can you see what we're trying to take a picture of there??
Worms!!!! We were in study hall. Four of us put our pennies together to get a candy bar. We broke the pieces apart, and everyone got their even share. And, what do high school students do when they find worms in their candy? They take a picture and put it in the yearbook, of course!!!!!
